Sale or Trade: 1982 Honda CR480...crazy 2 stroke!

  1. I've got this posted in a few places, so I apologize if you've already seen this ad.

    Here's your new vintage race bike!

    Make me an offer (cash or trade)! Want this thing out of my's collecting dust. I'd like to get $1000 but would take trades in the form of scooters, old v-twins, old street bikes, tools, welders, bike lift...try me

    The good:
    Frame and engine were recently repainted
    Everything is straight and super-clean
    All maintenance up to date
    New chain and front sprocket (rear is good)
    Newer front brake shoes (yes, shoes)
    New air filter
    New spark plug
    New grips
    85% complete and original (it's missing the front number plate and has the wrong left number plate (I believe it's from an '83))
    Aftermarket Mikuni carb
    Great compression
    Good suspension setup
    Brakes work well
    Decent tires

    The bad:
    Needs new footpegs
    I took the carb off to clean and re-jet (was running lean) and I haven't put it back on yet, and with everything I have going on right now, I probably won't have time to. Also, I think I lost the gasket for the bowl, so you may need a new one of those (they're cheap and readily available, as are most parts for this bike).

    The bottom line:
    I'm flexible on the price, so make me an offer. Depending on where you live, I may even be able to deliver it. Also, this thing is scary fast, so I wouldn't recommend it if you're new to riding (hell, I've been riding for 20 years and it scares me sometimes). Also, this bike has a clean and current title and registration, but they're both from CA (I just moved).

    Email/PM me with questions. I don't have any good photos but can possibly take some.
  2. Those photos are really tough to make out any detail in.
    Can your re-size?
    Also, paperwork?
  3. I'll try to take a few pictures tonight or tomorrow night.

    I have a title and current registration...from California.
  4. Rad.
    To be clear, I'm not in the market, but this stuff makes interest go up a lot.
  5. Yeah I know, that's why I put it in the ad ;)
  6. Also why I missed it. Because I am an unobservant moron.
  7. Hahaha....we've all had long days
